Nicky's love for art and design began when she earned her BFA in Interior Design from The Illinois Institute of Art. After working for some years in the field, Nicky began to illustrate baby animals after a friend asked her to create a baby bunny for a nursery. The bunny, which later became Nicky's logo, was a hit and became the foundation for what has become a growing portfolio of work. 

In addition to running her online shops, Nicky has licensed her work around the United States and her work can be found in-store with some large retailers such as Homegoods Kids and Hobby Lobby. She has also illustrated a children's book and is currently working on adding new products to her growing nursery line in addition to birds, wildlife and some new surface pattern designs too!

Nicky is a Mom of two grown-up daughters, is a self-confessed crazy plant and cat lady and enjoys walking in nature and gardening. Originally from England, she now lives in Illinois with her husband and an incredibly spoiled kitty.
